Biography

The second Mithraeum of Aquincum was founded by Marcus Antonius Victorinus, in his house located in the civil part of the 2nd century Roman city Aquincum, in lower Pannonia.

Due to the size of the house and the importance of its location we supposes that Marcus Antonius Victorinus was an influential individual. He has also dedicated a number of small altars within the same sanctuary.

Marcus Antonius Victorinus lived in Aquincum around the end of the 2nd century and the first half of the 3rd century. His family probably came from the eastern half of the Roman Empire.

His titles include decurio, aedilis, and even duumvir.
